I made a booking for 4 of us to have dinner and drinks for 7pm. We turned up and the restaurant was closed. We called the phone number there was no answer. No note was left on the door, no correspondence to say why the booking may not be honoured. Very disappointing!

After 10mins of calling and waiting it was apparent it was not going to be open. I would have at least expected a courtesy’s email/ phone call to let us know the booking would not be honoured.

It was a Friday night and - 7pm booking luckily a restaurant across the road had a table for us.

We enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch. We enjoyed the food and service was friendly, efficient and accommodating. I’d definitely go back if I was in the area.

Haven't been to the TreeHouse for ages - in my memory it used to be a gastro-pub. I'm afraid it really isn't now. Nice atmosphere, good place to meet for a drink. But couldn't recommend it for eating.

It’s a very nice, quiet pub, with excellent service and very reasonable prices. The gin & tonic and the ciders were particularly excellent, the food was tasty. We had such a good time we didn’t even realise we’ve been there for 6 hours on a lovely Sunday afternoon! I will definitely come back 👍

Great value. Lovely food and fantastic choice on the children's menu. We shared some starters and the portions were generous as we're the main courses.

Very much a Bistro/Local pub cross, a great place to enjoy catching up over a meal and a few drinks with Friends and Family.
Friendly and courteous service, the atmosphere is both welcoming and chilled, also our leg of Lamb Sunday roast, with all the trimmings, arrived within minutes of being ordered.

Excellent friendly pub, great service and food. Nice to see lots of vegetarian options plus smaller plates if needed. Will definitely go back!

New management are making a big effort to relaunch this well established venue after its past problems and keep the same quirky furniture and fittings. Found food to be reasonable bistro price levels but to be very good quality and very well cooked with very attentive staff and a lot of effort has gone in here from two recent experiences. Its quiet still but word needs to get around that this unique and local iconic place has been cleaned up and it should get back to being a busy establishment as it used to be

Three of us met on Saturday at the newly-reopened TreeHouse for lunch. The reservation system had worked well, but it wouldn't have been necessary to book as the place was almost empty.

We didn't order anything exciting in the way of drinks, although I was almost tempted to have a G&T as it was such a sunny and warm day.

We shared a plate of houmous to start. There was lots of pitta bread to go around, and the houmous was quite a generous portion too. It was tasty enough, but the houmous we thought was too smooth and didn't have enough garlic in it. Probably wouldn't order that again.

One of us had the beef bourguignon as a main course (good, and plenty of it); one of us had the quinoa and edamame burger (thanks, Slimming World!); and one of us had the lamb chops (good flavour, but quite greasy - particularly when served with a leek fondue). Only one of us wanted pudding - and chose fruit crumble that went down very well.

The location was ideal for us; the ambience was perfectly acceptable; the music was probably a little too loud but not too intrusive; and the service was just a bit disjointed, but very friendly.

Overall, we'll be going again but will probably avoid the houmous!

As this is the nearest restaurant to my home I was pleased to see it reopen with new owners. Wasn’t sure what it would be like but what little publicity that had gone out suggested that the new owners were wine experts running lots of tastings. Went in for lunch and was therefore suprised to be given a menu but no list of drinks at all. With questioning we figured out a soft drink and when I asked about wine was verbally offered non-specific malbec or chianti as if I was in a disinterested pub. Had to chase waiter to get some water and again to get a napkin. Food was fine. Will probably eat there again but only because of location. Wouldn’t walk past another place to get there. Was half-term so hopefully new owners were on holiday and they just had some temps in for the week. Genuinely disappointed because I wanted to have a good place near me..

Attended the Wine Dinner. Very good food that was interesting and tasty and lots of it. The wines were excellent and interesting. The prices for ordering the wine by way of off sales were good. Service was excellent, no waiting around to be served plus very friendly. The atmosphere was good. The bar and dining room are sparsely decorated but comfortable nonetheless
